Gene Loves Jezebel - Shaving My Neck


On this date in 1982, Gene Loves Jezebel released their debut record, an EP called Shaving My Neck. Aside from the title track, it included "Sun And Insanity", "Machismo" and "Glad To Be Alive". None of the tracks appeared on their debut album, Promise, though all were added to the album when it was re-released on CD. The Porthcawl, Wales post punk/goth band is still together but as two separate bands. Twin brothers Jay and Michael Ashton are feuding and own rights to the band's name in different countries so...the band lives on...times two.
